Off The Wagon

<= back to song list

HEY BARTENDER POUR ME ANOTHER SHOT
HELLO MY OLD FRIEND, FILL IT TO THE TOP
DRINKIN IS EASY, MORNIN’S A LITTLE ROUGH
NIGHTTIME IS MY TIME FOR MORE OF THAT GOOD STUFF
CONVERSATION IS DRAGGIN, AND I’M SLIDIN DOWN THE WALL
I’M ALREADY OFF THE WAGON
TELL ME HOW MUCH FURTHER MUST I FALL

QUARTER PAST TEN, AND I’M BUSHWHACKED AGAIN
SITTIN HERE THINKIN TONIGHT I’LL MAKE A NEW FRIEND
GOT A DRINKER’S SWAGGER AND A SMOKER’S COUGH
THERE’S A BUCK IN IT FER YA, IF YOU DON’T CUT ME OFF
MY HARD DRIVE NEEDS DE-FRAGGIN
MAKE IT A TRIPLE FOR LAST CALL
I’M ALREADY OFF THE WAGON
TELL ME HOW MUCH FURTHER MUST I FALL

TOO SMART TO STUMBLE, TOO SURE TO FAIL
COPS ON MY TAIL, TRAIN BEGINNING TO DERAIL

I’M NOT SIPPING IN THE ALLEY, I’M NOT SLEEPING IN MY CAR
SURELY I CAN HIT THE BRAKES BEFORE IT GOES TOO FAR
I STILL MAKE IT INTO WORK, SO I’M JUST A LITTLE LATE
CAN’T YOU PLEASE ACCEPT JUST TO BE SOBER’S NOT MY FATE

CONVERSATION IS DRAGGIN AND I’M SLIDIN DOWN THAT WALL
I’M ALREADY OFF THE WAGON
TELL ME HOW MUCH FURTHER MUST I FALL

DAYDREAMING ON THIS BARSTOOL
ABOUT HOW THINGS WERE
TIME HAS MOVED ON
WHILE I’M LIVING IN THIS BLUR
GOT NO BOTTLE TO PUT MY BAG IN
AND NO TAXI TO CALL
I’M ALREADY OFF THE WAGON
TELL ME HOW MUCH FURTHER I MUST FALL
